Cook's Third Voyage


Cook's third voyage was directed towards the Northern Pacific. Primarily it was to attempt to discover a North West Passage from the Pacific side. He sailed further north than any mariner to date only to find excessive ice acting as a barrier to any further travel. It was on this journey that Cook was killed in the Hawaiian islands.
